    At my firm (unnamed Wall Street specialist firm) those way up the corporate food chain are issued Blackberries. Not the newer 8700s but a cheaper, older model with greyscale screens. Those of us buying their own devices all seem to have Treos. Well over half the staff now has one model Treo or another with most being 650's on Verizon or Sprint. That's 40+ Treos. It's the "must have" accouterment much like a Rolex watch.

    I have used several Blackberries and I fell in love with the jog wheel. I'd love it on my Treo! I'd gladly trade the touch screen for the wheel, but hey, that's just me. Does anybody think the elimination of the touch screen would aid the stability of the Palm OS? I recall reading somewhere that the touch screen feature was difficult to integrate into any OS and was a source of many problems.

    exactly my point. they don't carry them because they're the cheapest alternative but more-so because of what the end users really need (text/email transmission). given their form factors they are the obvious choice.

    but not anymore with the advent of the Moto-Q.

    hate the blackberries, have fallen out of love with all of my previous treos and love my current Moto. it's almost perfect.

    Probably not, most lock ups and resets that people have are because of third party software or corrupted files. Removing the touch screen would just make many Treo users angry.

    I could go for a non-touch screen, if there was better cursor-control. I have infrequent need to touch the screen. But there are still some apps that are not fully 5-way compatible.
